  • Chain Thinking : A Shep Harrington SmallTown Mystery
    by Light, Elliott

    Syndey Vail, once a beautiful soap opera star, now has a passion for championing
    the rights of animals?but she keeps the controversial methods of her cause as
    shrouded as she keeps her partially disfigured face. Sydney enters
    lawyer-cum-detective Shep Harrington?s life in a cloud of dust and vanishes just
    as quickly, leaving behind two very different but strangely connected things: a
    chimpanzee and a murder.The chimpanzee is the young Kikora whom Sydney liberated
    from her confining cage in a testing lab at DMI?a mega-medical conglomerate led
    by the hard-driving Howard Doring, who ?apparently believes that the human
    animal has every right to exploit all living things.? At DMI, she and other
    chimps were used to test a new anti-obesity pill. The murdered victim, killed by
    a blow to the head, is Dr. Celia Stone, the DMI researcher in charge of
    Kikora.Soon Shep realizes that Kikora, left in his initially unwilling care, is
    not only stolen property, but the eyewitness to a murder. The longer he keeps
    her, the more threatened his own freedom becomes?and the more often tough
    questions race through his head. Can an animal be an eyewitness? For that
    matter, can an animal be property? What about an animal whose only difference
    from humans is 1.6% of DNA? The questions confuse Shep, who?s never had to think
    about these issues before. And the only answers he can seem to find lie in the
    big brown eyes of a chimp called Kikora.Chain Thinking is a whodunit with a
    heart and a mystery with a message. Once the mystery is solved, there?s a whole
    lot more left to think about. Shep finds his answers. Will you find yours?
